Class E – financial and professional or betting office or pay day loan shop to shops
What is allowed
Development consisting of a change of use of a building with a display window at ground floor level from—
a use falling within Class E (financial and professional services), or
a use as a betting office or a pay day loan shop,
to a use falling within Class E (shops) .
Where can I use it
On any building in England without restriction.
What is not allowed
There are no restrictions to this allowance.
How do I use the allowance
This is a normal permitted development allowance which may be used without restriction subject to local article 4 requirements.
On the face of it this allowance has been partially caught out in the amalgamation of Classes A1 and A2 into one class albeit the allowance also provides for other sui-generis uses to go to Class E and may well still prove useful.
